Usage and Conclusion
I used the Rocker Mat for about a week for pretty much everything. I play SWTOR a few hours a day so I clocked quite a few hours of game time on this mousepad for the purpose of the review.
The In-Win Rocker Mat runs $40 directly from In-Win. Is it worth the pricetag? Well, I think it is a bit overpriced but you have to look at what it is made out of and the design. The H-Frame isn’t really “cost effective” case to use in the first place and nor is this mousepad.
The biggest problem with the Rocker Mat is the noise. It is really loud to when you move your mouse around and kinda drove me crazy. It eventually gets drowned out when gaming but when just browsing the web, its annoying. Another downer is how cold it is! My mouse hand get cold when gaming and this just makes it worse. Even after a few hours of gaming, its still freezing cold. When it comes to performance, I didn’t really see any difference between it and the freebee floppy mousepad or a high end gaming mousepad.
The only good thing I can say about this is that it is great for travel. It slides right into my laptop bag with no issues and acts like an extra layer of protection for my laptop. This would also be great for someone that spends a lot of time in airports and planes, like me, because it provides a hard, smooth surface when nothing else is around.
ThinkComputers gives the In-Win Rocker Mat a 7 out of 10 score.
- Good for travel
- Noisey surface
- Cold to the touch
- No real performance improvement vs. cheap/gaming mousepads
